Bug Description

Just spent 2 hours downloading Raspberry pi image and your software. Now got the image, got my SD card in the slot, unzipped your program, run it, browsed to my image, but when I click on 'Device' absolutely nothing happens!
Frustrated to say the least.

From the question posted with this:

It appears that the software has to 'see' the device being plugged in, ie. it can't see it if its already attached to the computer when the program starts up!!

That's the *opposite* of how I've seen it work. There is a known issue with some memory card readers where they don't "notify" that a previously-empty slot has had a device inserted, so IW never knows about the device. But if IW is started with the device already in the slot, it can be seen.

In order for IW to "not see" an already present device, it would have to report itself as "fixed" ("non-removable").

What type of card reader? What OS version? It is possible this is a duplicate of bug 984510, but I need more info.
